Residency and Tax Registration in Malta
Malta’s tax system allows persons who are resident, but not domiciled, in Malta to pay Maltese tax on income arising in Malta and income arising abroad which gets remitted to Malta. In addition, capital gains arising out of Malta or capital funds which are remitted to Malta are tax free. So how to become a resident of Malta? If you’re an EU citizen the process is simple, as allowed by the EU’s Treaty on Freedom of Movement. However, for non-EU nationals the situation is a little more complex. The simplest way to obtain a residency permit is by finding employment on the Island. But there are other ways to go about it. High net worth individuals or highly qualified personnel can receive residence rights and/or favourable taxation regimes through the Global Residency Programme. Malta has also adopted both the Individual Investment Program (IIP) and a Visa programme, allowing people to reside in Malta against a financial contribution and investment on the Island.
